Creationism Vs. Evolution: A Spiritual Perspective On The Debate That Will Really Make You Think

Published

on

In this article, I offer a different take on the creation or evolution debate, unpacking how both can fit in according to spiritual principles.

The creation vs. evolution debate has been going forever, and with good reason: A definitive answer to the question would presuppose the answers to where we come from and what life on Earth means. It would answer a lot of questions.

Creation or Evolution?

In a word, the answer is creation. Earth was created…. but not quite in the way that you think. Have you ever had one of those dreams that was so real that it actually took you a few minutes or hours to regain your equilibrium and figure out which reality you are in again?

Most commonly, society speaks of those dreams in which your partner does something that feels so real that you are mad at them in real life.

In its simplest essence, life is like that dream.

It’s like entering The Matrix — your consciousness is ‘plugged in’ to this ’reality’ when you enter it, but at the same time, you bring your part of this reality with you, because this is a completely individuated and separated existence. In fact, that individuation is the whole point of life on Earth.

So the reality starts from you the moment you enter it, and it will disappear the moment you leave it, or die. You will take your part that you created with you — this is the sense of loss we feel when someone dies. They are literally removing a part of our energetic reality, or the morphic field.

It’s also that fullness we feel with a birth – the new life literally adds another layer to the energetic tapestry of our world.

An interesting way to start unpacking this for yourself is to consider: How do you know that what you are seeing or hearing is the same thing as what others are seeing and experiencing?

You assume that people see the same ‘thing’ that you do in front of you, but the truth is that we learn a system of codification when we enter the world. Someone points to that spot at the end of their face and says the word ‘nose.’ So our brain stores or encodes (codifies) the element we are seeing and correlates it to the word (sound projection) of ‘nose.’

But you actually have no way of looking out through that person’s eyes or with that person’s brain to see what they are actually seeing. You’ve simply agreed, through the codification of language, that that element is a nose, and you use that ‘abbreviation’ (word) when you attempt to communicate or ‘share’ your experience.

Even when they ‘see’ a ‘photo,’ which must be proof that you are ‘seeing’ the same thing, the person is only aligning their internal codification to the picture they are seeing, and agreeing based on that former knowledge. You still cannot experience WHAT exactly they are seeing.

There Is No Actual Physical Creation

There is no place where Earth exists as a physical entity as such — there is simply this collection of combined energies that make up the morphic or holographic field.

So when we say plugged in, it’s a lot more Matrix-like, with your mind participating in the experience and a clever series of filters making it appear real to you.

And even though you need to bring your part to experience this reality, it is only as a collective that we are strong enough to create the space-time illusion of reality that we call the physical plane. So if it was just you, you wouldn’t be able to create the whole shebang alone.

A Thought Projection

So your thought experience is projected into this world, and the blank slate we enter with enables you to ‘accept’ what you experience as reality, because you learn it without contrast to any other experience… and you accept it as being ‘real.’

This is the first layer of the ‘system’ we speak of but can never quite define.

Another interesting concept that will help you unpack this over time is the fact that sight is one dimensional information; this is why it allows for subliminal information to be used so effectively. When you‘re looking at something, it’s with a single point of focus. So if you go inside the house, for example, the wall will block your single point of sight from seeing your neighbor.

But, if your neighbor shouts you will still hear it through the wall, because sound is a multidimensional experience. Sound traverses dimensions, and that is why we use sound such as drumming, singing, chanting, and prayer to reach across dimensions to the other side.

Earth is a visual plane, and we learn by taking in enormous amounts of visual information in our lifetimes, so we come to accept what we ‘see’ as ‘real.’

In fact, some estimates say that over 70% of what we take in is visual. Over time, this programming becomes so ingrained that we accept it as our ‘reality’ — we ‘believe what we see.’. It’s like oxygen: We can’t remember a time when it wasn’t there.

What Is the Morphic Field?

The morphic field is like the Internet of all knowledge for Earth. Our souls, minds, and bodies can plug into this field of knowledge like a computer or device, uploading and downloading information from the field.

A simple way that you can see the morphic field at play is when you and your friend both message each other at the same time or say the same thing at the same time. You both thought it because the energy was present in the field and you both received the message at the same time. It stemmed from the field.

First discovered in the 60s and 70s, the morphic field became widely known because of kinesiology and through the pioneering work of Sir David Hawkins, who has conducted decades of research into the phenomenon and defined the Human Consciousness Scale.

Everything about this Earth plane exists in this field: karma, society, rules, principles, morals, ethics, reality, nature, the natural order of things. Even life and death exist within the field.

How do we know this? Because if you carried the essence of life within yourself you would never be able to die, and if you carried death, you would never be able to live. So the morphic field manages this for you.

In fact the morphic field manages everything for you — your breathing, your heart beating, getting sick, getting healthy, your natural progression in physical and mental spheres, and so much more. It’s like our superconscious brain, or even our instinct. But it resides in one collective body instead of being personal to each of us.

So what the process of consciousness is, therefore, is the process of taking control of certain aspects of your body, life, etc., so that you can CONSCIOUSLY control, manipulate, or change them, instead of allowing the morphic field to do it for you.

Karma and the Morphic Field

Another key aspect that lives within this morphic or holographic field is karma, and karma is basically the residue of unresolved emotion that was left in the field by somebody when they died.

The reason there is some confusion about what happens after death is that it is driven by what you believe and the level of development you’re at. So according to those criteria, different souls will experience the after-death experience in various ways.

In addition, a third criteria that determines what happens after death has to do with ego, or identity.

At every layer of the spiritual evolution, you are less and less tied to your identity, e.g.:

  •  Atheists: this brief identity is all that exists, vs.
  •  Christians: your identity remains forever and you go to heaven or hell, and you will be this identity for all eternity, vs.
  • Reincarnation: which says that you have an overlying soul identity of which this particular lifetime is just a single offshoot.

So with reincarnation, when you return from this life, this identity will disappear and you will adopt a new identity for your next life. There’s much less attachment to the actual identity (ego) of this particular life.

Everything that you do in the field, including live and die as above, stays within the field. And karma does, too.

If you are still at an earlier stage of your overall journey, and you were somewhat still attached to particular identities in particular lifetimes, then when you reenter the field in a new life, your energy would actively seek out the residual energy or karma you left behind in previous lives.

This is often why souls have a predilection for certain geographic areas, because geography plays an active role in the morphic field.

One of the ways we see the morphic field’s geographic level of influence is through Critical Mass, or the Maharishi Effect, which has been measured as the square root of 1% of any given population, as shown in various experiments, including those performed by the FBI.

What the experiments have shown is that one person impacts 100 around them, while two people impact 400, and three impact 900. Using this measure, we would need only 144,000 enlightened beings to facilitate the entire global shift.

Read more about the Maharishi Effect here.

Empaths and Karma

But not everyone will find their karma, soulmate, or twin flame, or even get it right when they do, so there has to be a backup. That backup is empaths.

When someone doesn’t release their karma from the field, that energy can linger — which is where the empath cleanup crew kicks in.

The role of the empath is to absorb energies similar to those they are personally experiencing and release them from the field — because the ‘humanity’, ‘mankind’, ‘society’ and ‘civilization’ we are here to fix and protect and heal is actually the morphic field.

In the grand scheme of things, short individual human lives of a few years don’t really mean a huge amount, but the collective impact of humanity — or the morphic field — is where all the unresolved issues lie. That’s what needs to be returned to Source, because that’s what ties souls to this plane.

Manifestation and Dinosaurs

So how does this all tie back to creation vs. evolution— and how do we explain dinosaurs and the fossil records and radio carbon dating and science?

Let’s recap… your consciousness enters a collective thought projection (reality or the morphic field) in a way that enables you to accept the experience as a singular reality. But, you bring your part of that collective reality with you, which is how you have the individual power to create exactly what you want without interfering with the free will of the other beings.

So the morphic or holographic field is therefore the places where all these separate and individuated realities mesh and join, and it largely consists of the places where these realities are in agreement, e.g. language. We agree on language and vocabulary, and so that agreed-upon system of codification becomes a part of our shared reality.

Still, you are given the gifts of the Gods to create your reality according to your beliefs.

This means that you can create anything you want if you can learn to consciously master the holographic field, or gain consciousness, in other words.

So, if you become determined to find an answer that will explain a theory like evolution, then if you look hard enough you will find it — you will manifest the answer into your reality. This is how you have the gifts of the Gods to create your reality.

We then perpetuate that ‘discovery of reality’ into the shared reality or morphic field, by telling others about this discovery and giving them language, jargon, or a codification for it.

One of the clearest ways you see this is in our education system: Any degree is really an advanced study of the language and jargon of that field.

By creating a shared understanding of certain terminology, you enable ‘experts’ in that field to discuss the subject at a much more advanced level — because you don’t waste time explaining key concepts every single time.

So a simple example would be a bridge. If a builder had to create a new solution for crossing water on every project, then solving just that water problem could take up the entire project focus, and different solutions would be found each time: go around, tunnel under, build a raft, build a bridge.

But because the planner has a shared concept for a bridge in place through his or her education, they can simply allocate a bridge to be built to cross the body of water, without wasting time devising a new solution.

This is how we stand on the shoulders of giants by means of our educational system.

The System and Reality

So by giving us the same baseline in schooling, for example, the system creates a subconscious agreed-upon baseline for our shared reality.

But the truth is that EVERYTHING you know about this world was taught to you, from so early on, and in such subtle ways, that you come to accept it as your reality.

A great and simple example of this is the content in early schooling reading books…. see Spot run, see the house, see mom and dad. Look at the sky, the stars, the moon, the sun. We live on a ball hanging around in space that is millions of years old. Gravity exists.

You were taught ALL of this — none of it was instinctual knowledge. In fact, most of it took you a while to grasp.

That’s how they program you from a very young age.

And most often they do it by hiding the information inside another layer — we’re learning the accepted structure of the family in society subliminally, while we consciously focus on learning to read.

Question What You Know

As someone who has walked my own long and difficult path, I know that I cannot impart onto you how I know this and what I’ve seen, but I can give you one piece of advice: Question what you already know.

In order to really traverse onto the next level I have found myself having to wrap my head around the most conflicted duality concepts and suspend all disbelief. The truth is WAY weirder than you can imagine, and there is very little in your earthly experience that can prepare you for it.

So question everything you think you already know in preparation, because this is open mindedness on an entirely new level.

Full Moon In Aries: Change & Renewal

Published

on

We are having a Full Moon in Aries which will be exact on October 13th at 9:08pm Universal Time. It will appear the fullest that night for the majority of the world, and on the night of the 12th for those in Hawaii.

This is the peak of the Lunar cycle which began two weeks prior with a New Moon in Libra. The energies of it build up as the Moon increases its light and are strongest in the days before and after. However, it will still be a part of the backdrop over the following two weeks.

Full Moon’s are a period in which we feel a push-pull between two opposing signs, in this case being the Moon in Aries and Sun in Libra. It can reflect either a conflict or integration of both signs.

We can feel this opposition happening individually within us and/or we can also experience it play out around us with some people (or circumstances) expressing the Libra side and others expressing the Aries side. In some cases, Full Moon’s can also reflect/trigger some sort of release or change.

Aries is a fire sign ruled by Mars. It is about individual needs, action, moving forward, pioneering, independence, self-identity, self-orientation, and leadership. It is bold, courageous, and instinctual, yet it can also be aggressive, impulsive, impatient, selfish, and hot-tempered.

Libra is an Air sign ruled by Venus. It is about relating, relationships, partnerships, codependency, consideration, harmony, balance, fairness, art, creativity, and beauty. It is sociable, diplomatic, and intellectual, yet it can also be indecisive, passive aggressive, vain, and even judgemental.

Full Moon Square Pluto and Trine Jupiter

The Full Moon is in a tight square with Pluto which is near Saturn and the South Node in Capricorn. This can trigger the energy of the previous Lunar Eclipse which had strong themes of purging, letting go, as well as the potential for rebirth and transformation. It may reflect things from the past that need to be resolved or concluded.

The area of life in which this may occur depends on how it was interacting with your natal chart. It could be connected to Capricorn themes such as ambitions, career, control, management, social status, financial areas or potential structures in our lives.

This can also reflect issues pertaining to fears, obsessions, compulsive behavior, shadows, dark drives, manipulation, desires, deeply repressed feelings, jealousy, the underworld, and destruction. Conflicts around power and power struggles may also play out which may be connected to Aries-Libra themes mentioned above. Pluto may increase the potential of intensity and Saturn can reflect obstacles.

Although this configuration can be challenging, this Full Moon is also in a trine with Jupiter in Sagittarius which brings some positive and hopeful energy to it as well. This aspect can be good for expansiveness, exploration, and learning. Themes around morals, faith, beliefs, and perspectives may be a part of the equation. It can be good for addressing issues by looking at the big picture and incorporating a higher understanding.

Mercury In Pre-Retrograde Shadow Period, Sextile Saturn, Pluto and Trine Neptune

Mercury in Scorpio will be going retrograde on October 31st and has begun its pre-retrograde shadow period on October 11th/12th. Some of the developments or thoughts that are occurring now and over the coming weeks will go through a process in November in which there could be adjustments, new realizations, and overall some sort of re-calibration to set things up for the following months or even beyond that. I will be writing a separate article on this retrograde, you can join my mailing list here to ensure that you receive it.

Mercury is in a sextile with Saturn in Capricorn which is strongest during the Full Moon and the following day. This is good for any type of mental effort and using our mind in a realistic, practical, tangible, or essential way. Communications with others can feel solidifying, productive, or have themes around responsibility and commitment.

Mercury is also in a trine with Neptune in Pisces which peaks on October 15th/16th. Our thoughts, communications, or activities can be idealistic, imaginative, inspired, spiritual, creative, compassionate, or sensitive. This can heighten intuition and we can be more tuned in to symbolism. It can also be good for doing anything involving visual media.

Mercury is in a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn which is strongest October 19th/20th. This can reflect wanting to understand or communicate things on a deeper level. We can be more focused, penetrating, strategic, persuasive, and compulsive. In some cases it can also be good for getting a point across to facilitate some sort of change,

Venus and Mars In Each Other’s Signs

Mars (the ruler of the Aries Full Moon) is in Libra which is ruled by Venus while Venus is in Scorpio which is traditionally ruled Mars. Generally these planets are considered to be challenged when in these signs on their own, however, in this case they are assisting each other in what is referred to as a ‘mutual reception’.

The midpoint of both Venus and Mars are aligned with the Sun/Moon opposition, as well as in aspect with Pluto. Considering all of this, it helps to alleviate any of the potential conflict between the Aries-Libra opposition and can also help to unify both sides of the polarity.

In the day prior to this Full Moon, Venus was in an opposition to Uranus which could have reflected some changes, insights, disruptions, or surprises around Venus ruled areas such as relationships, money, pleasures, or values. Following this, it is than moving towards a sextile to Saturn which peaks from October 19th-20th. This can bring a more stabilizing, mature, realistic, and supportive energy around relations or finances.

Things To Consider During This Period

How can you approach individual needs while also being considerate of others? What changes do you need to make to help you grow and expand? What is going on beneath the surface? Are any of the potential challenges happening in your life connected to something that you need to release or transform? How do you feel about everything when you take a step back and look at it from a higher perspective? What is the big picture and how can you incorporate your understandings to help you proceed or resolve any difficulties?

These are just some examples of what could come up during this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out. If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what has come up at this Full Moon, it is best to do so anytime after the peak when as wanes over the following two weeks. The exact moment of this Full Moon is on October 13th at 9:08pm Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Parables For The New Conversation (Chapter 8: The Apple Tree)

Published

on

The following is a chapter from my book ‘Parables For The New Conversation.’ One chapter will be published every Sunday for 36 weeks here on Collective Evolution. (I would recommend you start with Chapter 1 if you haven’t already read it.) I hope my words are a source of enjoyment and inspiration for you, the reader. If perchance you would like to purchase a signed paperback copy of the book, you can do so on my production company website Pandora’s Box Office.

From the back cover: “Imagine a conversation that centers around possibility—the possibility that we can be more accepting of our own judgments, that we can find unity through our diversity, that we can shed the light of our love on the things we fear most. Imagine a conversation where our greatest polarities are coming together, a meeting place of East and West, of spirituality and materialism, of religion and science, where the stage is being set for a collective leap in consciousness more magnificent than any we have known in our history.

Now imagine that this conversation honors your uniqueness and frees you to speak from your heart, helping you to navigate your way more deliberately along your distinct path. Imagine that this conversation puts you squarely into the seat of creator—of your fortunes, your relationships, your life—thereby putting the fulfillment of your deepest personal desires well within your grasp.

‘Parables for the New Conversation’ is a spellbinding odyssey through metaphor and prose, personal sagas and historic events, where together author and reader explore the proposal that at its most profound level, life is about learning to consciously manifest the experiences we desire–and thus having fun. The conversation touches on many diverse themes but always circles back to who we are and how our purposes are intertwined, for it is only when we see that our personal desires are perfectly aligned with the destiny of humanity as a whole that we will give ourselves full permission to enjoy the most exquisite experiences life has to offer.”

8. The Apple Tree

Every autumn the same argument between the two orchard owners rang through the valley on the island of Allandon. Both claimed rights to the fruits of an apple tree whose roots laid on one’s land but whose trunk leaned drastically into the other’s property. They made their case to a seed planter who worked for both of them.

“It is on my property that the tree is rooted in the ground,” said the one. “Clearly the fruits belong to me. Is it not so?”

“He is free to pick all the apples he wants,” replied the other, “as long as he keeps his two feet on his land.”

“You know that is not possible. The tree leans over your property.”

“And so the tree, by its growth, has decided that I should have its fruit. What do you say, planter?”

“Come with me,” the seed planter said. He led them up the great mountain in the center of the island, keeping quiet as they continued to bicker. When they reached a lookout point near the top of the mountain, the seed planter spoke to them.

“Now look out onto your vast properties,” he said. “Where is the apple tree?”

“I can’t make out the tree from here,” said the one.

“It’s too small,” echoed the other.

“Exactly,” the seed planter said. “Now perhaps we can talk about this dispute.”

Einstein once said that problems cannot be solved at the same level of consciousness that created them. And yet in our lives we continue to try to do just that: whenever we see something showing up in the world that doesn’t suit us, we immediately try to change the world until it conforms to how we think it should be. But the problem itself does not originate in the outer world—it originates in our inner world where we first interpreted a thing or event as a ‘problem’. Even if we are successful in changing the external world to our liking at a given moment, it will not be long before the same ‘problem’ arises in a different form. This is like the arcade game where you hammer a mole back into its hole and another mole immediately pops up from a different hole ad infinitum. Instead of rushing to change the outer world, lasting solutions to our problems come from our ability to change our inner world by shifting to a higher level of consciousness.

This is not to say that we should never act in the world. It means that it is helpful to step back to take a better look at these ‘problems’ rather than reacting to them. In a society that still puts a premium on doing, the shift we are looking for brings into balance our propensity to act with our ability to reflect. For in reflection our problems can be re-viewed as opportunities, and the actions we take can become the product of choice rather than compulsion, if in fact we conclude that we need to act at all.

All so-called problems are rooted in the limited vision of our Ego Self. Since the Ego Self makes us feel alone, vulnerable, and separate from the abundance of the universe, we tend to be more focused on what we lack than what we have. So we continue to experience not having enough, even if we have more than enough to live happily. It is said that the richest people are not those with the most money, but rather those who most keenly appreciate what they have. So when wealthy corporate executives ruin their lives by breaking laws and going to jail for stealing money from their companies and employees, it naturally begs the question: What would it take to satisfy these millionaires? Certainly no particular ‘thing’ in this world. There is never enough wealth in the world to satisfy those who are solely following the voice of their Ego Self, since it only sees what is missing and cannot stop asking for “more, more, more!”

For a long time I lived my life from this place of scarcity and lack, where an unexpected expense like a parking ticket or a tax reassessment would send me into a fury. I felt that every penny leaving my hand was lost forever, and I really had to stay ready to fight for what I believed was mine. But now I see this is where all the trouble starts. When we are so singularly focused on what is ‘mine’ and what is ‘yours’, there is no wonder that disputes, arguments, wars occur.

Cultivating gratitude for all that we have can go a long way towards easing this kind of conflict. It becomes easier to defuse our self-centeredness when we consider how lucky we actually are, and acknowledge how other people are not as fortunate as us. Over the past few years I have received several reminders of this in my email inbox, like this one that exhorts us to appreciate the things we often take for granted:

We forget how fortunate we really are.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who won’t survive the week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture or the pangs of starvation you are ahead of 20 million people around the world.

If you attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death, you are more blessed than almost three billion people in the world.

If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace, you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.

If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read anything at all. If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful, you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

This kind of message is powerful, and can certainly get us thinking about what we can be thankful for in our lives. I know when I read it I was quite moved by it. When I am willing to take a look at those less fortunate, to really consider what life would be like in their shoes, I cannot help but see my own life in a more positive light. This is the duality of life at play, how we can be touched more keenly by something when we contrast it with its opposite. Do we not most appreciate food when we are most hungry? Do we not revel in the spring after a long winter? Are we not most grateful for our health after a prolonged sickness? Just ask someone who has recently survived cancer if they are happier to be alive than they used to be.

Fine. But we don’t have to be dependent on deprivation or illness to jolt us into gratitude and the feeling of being fully alive. Besides that, I know from my own experience of these phenomena that once things return to normal I start to take things for granted again. And even if I tried to recapture the feeling, the effect would diminish. I learned about this when I was young. The more my mother would tell us to think of the starving children in Africa whenever we would complain that she didn’t make a cheese sauce for our broccoli, the less it really moved us. It may have kept us quiet, but if anything we felt more guilt than gratitude, and it didn’t really help us enjoy our cheese-less broccoli.

Authentic gratitude brings with it a joy that makes us feel connected to each other and to the world. Gratitude based on contrast and comparison rarely has staying power because at a deep level it actually strengthens the Ego Self mindset of division and inequality. It is no wonder that in the face of our disproportionate wealth and opportunity in the world, the message contends that ‘the majority can [truly give thanks], but most do not.’ It is not that we don’t want to hold up our heads with a smile and truly be thankful, it is that our Ego Self cannot see beyond itself. We become restless and start searching for more of what it thinks is missing.

It is only in challenging our Western Ego-Self perspective that we can awaken to a more permanent appreciation of our lives. Chief Seattle gives us a clue as to the character of such gratitude, one that does not focus on the disparities between us but rather what all humans share: life itself and the bounties that it freely offers. When he gives thanks for ‘every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every clearing and humming insect,’ his gratitude is founded not on have and have-not but on the wholeness of human experience and a celebration of who we are, in the highest and most abundant image that we could have of ourselves.

The holistic wisdom of the East has already begun to penetrate into the fabric of our society. But for many of us who have tasted from its cup, those precious moments of connectedness it brings are hard to maintain, because of our own heritage. We remain hesitant to fully surrender control to a collective sense of self because we take pride in who we are as individuals, and how we have defined our lives. We do not avoid the urge to compare, inherent in a material life, but we seek to no longer be controlled by it. And so we move to and fro, sometimes in fits and starts, between where we have come from and where we think we are going. The ebb and flow of our emerging consciousness is the challenge of our times. And it is the mandate of the new conversation.

The space of the new conversation emulates our connectedness with one another. And so it is not a conversation grounded in debate and comparison, evaluation and judgment. Rather it focuses on building trust, fostering openness and deepening awareness. Our journey of consciousness is not seen as a race or a competition, but rather a shared adventure. It does not measure success or failure, nor concern itself with who is more or less evolved than another. It recognizes that in the circle of life we have all been at times up and down, ahead and behind, and where we are in the moment is precisely where we need to be.

To truly participate in the new conversation is to honor that we are each moving at our own pace and in our own way. It is to recognize that consciousness grows in rhythms, like waves rising and receding on the beach. It is to pledge not only to cheer each other on when we rush forward, but also to break each other’s fall when we tumble backwards.

The rewards of such a venture are not to be understated. Fueled by our shared strength and courage we can make our way up the slope of consciousness, to reach a place where the solution to every problem that exists in our world is in plain view. From this place we can see the forest for the trees, and gain a panoramic sense that we are all one. For it is only in the truth of our unity that we will finally rest in the awareness that we truly have no quarrel with each other. As an old Native American saying goes, ‘No tree is so foolish as to have its branches fight amongst themselves’.

Our work together in the new conversation, like that of climbers whose fates and lives are strung together by ropes and pulleys, will bring us closer to the source of a sustainable gratitude: the incomparable view from the mountaintop of our vast abundance and magnificence.

California’s First Surgeon General: Screen Every Student For Childhood Trauma

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    California's first surgeon general Dr. Nadine Burke Harris has a dream to screen children for childhood trauma before entering schools in an attempt to help them process these experiences to avoid developmental issues.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it time we take an entirely new societal and cultural approach to the emotional challenges we collectively face? Is it time we take personal responsibility for the communities we live within?

California’s first surgeon general, Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, has an ambitious goal to screen every student for childhood trauma before entering school. Dr. Harris has dedicated her career to changing the way society views and responds to childhood trauma. This is a worthwhile effort as research shows childhood trauma affects brain development and it will build a society that is more empathetic to all and unique situations.

Why it matters: While some feel this is not the job of state to determine this, and in the wrong hands this could appear to be a pharmaceutical nightmare, it appears Dr. Harris’ specifics are going in the right direction. Reframing ‘disorders’ doctors simply don’t seem to understand is an important step in helping kids.

“One thing that tipped me off was the number of kids being sent to me by schools — principals, teachers and administrators — with ADHD […] “What I found was that many of the kids were experiencing signs of adversity, and there seemed to be a strong association between adversity and the trauma they experienced and school functioning.”

Already, Dr. Harris’ research team has found that kids who had experienced severe trauma were 32 times more likely to be diagnosed with learning and behavioural problems than kids who had not. Further pointing to the fact that many of the challenges we face in society come from challenging times and emotions that never get processed.

We live in a time where emotional intelligence and self-awareness are extremely undeveloped across the globe, and this is not being taught to enough people, especially at a young age.

The conscious takeaway: There is no doubting the fact that we need more community in our world. And while people doubt the creation of community in the wrong hands, it doesn’t mean all have nefarious intentions. Raising awareness about topics such as this whereby a leader truly feels that blanket statements like ADHD don’t really tell us anything about a child and we must look deeper, is a great thing!

Imagine a world where education and societal culture did focus on things like emotional intelligence and helping people process their challenging experiences? We all know telling someone to just ‘buck up and let it go’ hasn’t brought us to a good space, perhaps it’s time for an entire cultural shift? This, after all, has been what we have been creating here at Collective Evolution for the last 10 years.

This story very much plays into steps 2, 3 and 4 of the CE Protocol. Awakening neutrality within people, deprogramming our limitations and then living aligned with our true and authentic self.

“When you have a whole community making real change, you can have a big and lasting change.” – Dr. Nadine Burke Harris

Looking deeper: Currently, the approach to children who are ‘problems’ in school is to get rid of them or medicate them. In fact, there are over 20 million schoolchildren who are being prescribed stimulants and psychotropic drugs according to Citizens Commission on Human Rights. Most of the public is not even aware of this. While big pharma profits huge with an unconscious approach to these challenges, society suffers greatly.

It’s truly time for something different, and all you have to ask yourself is are we capable of creating more peace within our youth and society? If yes, a new approach is needed.
